Dokuro Review – Everyone loves escort missions

Dokuro

Dokuro is a game that has been around for a while. It received stellar reviews on the PlayStation Vita and some time ago approached the PC audience to offer us its quite unique art style and puzzle experience. Dokuro is at its core a frankly awesome puzzle game. It is challenging (despite some difficulty spikes here and there), it’s endearing, ... Read More »

As if everyone who inhabited it just left and never returned. As if, perhaps, something led them to run away in a hurry, fearing for their lives. ... Read More »

Wolfenstein: The Old Blood Review – A Return to Castle Wolfenstein

Wolfenstein the Old Blood Header

Last year saw the release of Wolfenstein: The New Order, one of my personal games of the year. It had everything I would want from a Wolfenstein game: intense firefights, loads of nazis, and a diverse lineup of locations. However, there was one thing it lacked. Castle Wolfenstein itself. Thankfully, part one of Wolfenstein: The Old Blood rectifies that with B.J. Blazkowitz infiltrating the ... Read More »

Titan Souls Review: Bring More Arrows Next Time

Titan Souls

Titan Souls is one of those games that causes a polarizing effect on the players who play it, as it’s very hit or miss depending on the experience that plays out. Several publications, as well as myself, have drawn comparisons to the famous Shadow of the Colossus. There is an essence of truth to this due to the Boss Rush ... Read More »
